Twitter Doesn't Work: The App Is Crashing (Again) And Here's What We Know (Updated)

UPDATED (03/06/23 18:58): Twitter is working again. According to the social networkthe problems were caused by “an internal change that had some unintended consequences.”

Once again, Twitter has stopped working properly. After the problems that arose at the beginning of this month, the microblogging social network again gives failures, this time, in several of its components.

Specifically, the platform’s link function has been broken. When trying to enter any type of link, Twitter throws an error message that refers to the system API and invites you to contact the development team.

The problems in the social network have also been reflected in downdetector. The online services monitoring platform shows a peak of falls from 18:06 (Spanish peninsular time).

This scenario of frequent falls occurs after the acquisition of the social network by Elon Musk. The businessman has laid off much of the staff, raising questions about Twitter’s ability to function stably.

Musk is leaving the Twitter workforce to a minimum.  The question is how many people do you need to keep it going?

In fact, as we mentioned at the beginning of this month, everything indicates that the massive cuts have affected the stability of the platform, which leads us to wonder if the problems will increase. At the moment, once again, the millions of users who use the service cannot do so normally.
